MLB 2006 is the best single player baseball game of 2005.

There, I said it. It's tough for me to admit after so much mlb2k5 playing but once I started a franchise in mlb06 I never went back. MLB06 just FEELS like baseball, I don't know how else to describe it. It's got all the nice little touches (e.g. the catcher throws the ball back to the pitcher) that ASB baseball had but it doesn't play like butt. MVP plays really well but just bores the crap out of me. MLB2K5 is awesome online but pitches dont look that good, really hard to pick up on movement and speed; I also HATE tapping on buttons really fast. MLB2006 fills the void in my heart left by the demise of HighHeat 2 years ago.

Thank you. I needed to say that. I feel better now.

They bought you too, huh?

Is this the 989 Studios MLB 2006?

That would be correct sir.

The very mention of the words ""989 Studios"" makes me wary, since they''ve been churning out anti-sports titles since... forever.

I know, I know, I was scared too. Operation Sports convinced me to try mlb2005 when they rated it best of last year. I picked it up for $5 and it played pretty well so I risked the mlb06 puchase. Hell, gamespot rated it higher than mlb2k5! Still 3rd ongamerankings but doing OK on metacritic.

[edit] SwampYankee - I said I was a baseball game whore

I retract my condemnation!

I thought you were referring to the EA <spits> title
